Album Art: 

"Eyes on the Prize," by Carol Pacey and the Honey Shakers is a decent Americana rock album with a female powerhouse vocalist. At its best best, the guitar is jamming and Carol Pacey's vocals mesh perfectly, giving the track an empowering sound. Her vocals, at times, are remiscent of the same twangly, gravely strength as singers such as Sheryl Crow and Joan Osborne. At its worst, "Eyes on the Prize," is kitschy and uninspired. For some reason, "Oh Heart Where Art Thou," reminds me of something would be on a cat food commercial with its wacky horns and quirky vocals. Overall, it is Carol Pacey's vocal performance that shines, bringing strength and cohesion to the album. If you like Sheryl Crow or any other strong female vocalists with a touch twang, you may also enjoy "Eyes on the Prize," by Carol Pacey and the Honey Shakers.
